White Heron Sangha is dedicated to continuing the ancient Buddhist tradition of freely offering the dharma without charge, knowing that it is priceless. We encourage the practice of dana, which means generosity in Pali (the original language of the Buddha). This generosity of our community pays the expenses of the sangha and supports the teachers we bring to our area for workshops and retreats, White Heron Sangha programs, and some dharma-related causes. All donations, regardless of the amount, are appreciated by everyone in the sangha. The "Vipassana Metta on Hawaii" website (www.vipassanametta.org) provides a beautiful and clear explanation of the meaning of dana and its importance: See what is “dāna”?
